Record #126788:

Altitudinal organization of Karakoram geomorphic processes and depositional environments / Kenneth Hewitt.

Title: Altitudinal organization of Karakoram geomorphic processes and depositional environments / Kenneth Hewitt.
Author(s): Hewitt, Kenneth.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: London: Routledge
Abstract: Factors of greatest importance are large gradients of precipitation with elevation, temperature regimes including frequent freeze--thaw, and duration of snow on ground. These factors play large erosional role; avalanches, glacier flow and seasonal meltwaters also play important part. Glacier ablation zones, which constitute large fraction of area, are highly relevant.
